Ignoring the lack of romance, there is a lack of feeling that they are simply excited to be together.

I read the LNs and it's pretty much the same there.

It's kind of a waste. Juna especially since at least Aisha is always around the MC.
Well, there was a scene where Juna seemed to be impressed by Souma so I assume that's where she became attracted to him...which was believable enough, even if it was only one scene.

You may as well respect the majority of all woman around the world, as they are rarely the ones wanting polygamy. And again, she'd still have the whose child is it problem, which comes important for heritage of the throne.

Elisha isn't that much different from what you'd expect of a noble. The treasury having been full of her jewelry, while the people hungered, is actually a rather good example of that. It really doesn't take a genius to figure that one could just sell it off.

I may or may not say more depending on whether this gets a second season.

Majority of women are not isekai queens who are free & accepted to have multiple husbands with nobody saying no to their decisions.

And again: selective contraceptive measure. She surely can arrange it if she so desire. Also, she is the Queen. All she needs to do is tell people which child belongs to whom. If there is no physical disrepancy, noone should doubt her.

I respect her one deed. Doesn't mean I respect her other less-altruistic deeds.

There are some scenes though. Particularly showing the girls' feelings toward Souma. Juna, for instance, had that touching scene where she found Souma exhausted and struggling, and helped him go to sleep, ending by whispering that while Liscia will be there to draw out his strength she'll be there to help hide his weakness. And Aisha has made it clear from the start that she likes him and wishes to stay by his side. They both seem to recognize that they're not to be as close as him, and thus defer to Liscia, but their feelings are still apparent. Could even argue this might be what's expected of them in this situation. Like, in a culture where polygamy exists but there are different levels, it may be that suitors looking to become second wives or something might make a point of letting a woman betrothed as the future first wife have more time and get closer.
